The real reason the House isn’t voting.

October 7, 2019

What’s the big deal about having the House of Representatives vote on the impeachment “inquiry?”

It has almost nothing to do with “embarrassing” individual senators.

The real reason is that as long as they don’t vote, Republicans, as the minority, cannot issue subpoenas or ask any questions of witnesses.

In short it hamstrings them, allowing Democrats to have sole control of the impeachment process.

Never mind that someone like Michael Mukasey, the 81st U.S. Attorney General, says that the President asking Ukraine and China to investigate Biden isn’t an impeachable offense.

What about  the suggestion that the FBI and CIA should be the people investigating Biden?

Right. The two agencies who tried to keep Trump from even being elected should investigate Joe Biden, the man Democrats see as the most likely person to defeat Trump in 2020. As we have said before, it is naive to think that ALL the individual agents love Trump.

Actually, assuming the fix isn’t in for Biden in the same way it was for Hillary, Liz Warren is far more likely to be Trump’s 2020 opponent, but that’s a story for another day.

Back to the prospect of voting for the inquiry. Nancy Pelosi knows exactly what she is doing by refusing to hold a vote, and she didn’t need AOC and the three other squabs to tell her what to do.  The longer she can keep Republicans from asking embarrassing questions or sending out subpoenas of their own the better it is for the Dems.

Kind of sounds like dirty pool, doesn’t it?
